"KC helped me change my life. When I first came to her, I was a depressed, anxious, angry mess. With her help, and a lot of hard work on my part, I'm finally at peace with myself, with the world, and with everything out there that's not under my control. I don't know what I would have done without her."
"KC is a miracle worker. I have worked with other therapists in the past and was never able to work through my trauma until I met her."

Psychotherapy refers to a range of treatments that can help with mental health problems, emotional challenges, and some psychiatric disorders. It aims to provide insight to clients in order to understand their feelings. It promotes an understanding of what makes them feel positive, anxious, or depressed. This enables clients to learn to cope with difficult situations in a more adaptive way.
There are several approaches in psychotherapy.
Behavioral therapy helps clients gain insight into how their behavior influences the way they feel and focuses on increasing a person’s engagement in positive or socially reinforcing activities.
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) pairs cognitive with behavioral therapy, to address both thoughts and behaviors.
Cognitive therapy is focused on “cognition” or “thoughts”. It starts with the idea that what we think shapes how we feel. Cognitive therapy challenges the beliefs a person has about a situation in order to alter their emotional state. It looks at present thinking and communication patterns, rather than the past.
This approach focuses on interpersonal relationships. Symptoms may stem from a person's relationship with others. A client learns skills for improving communication patterns which helps the client to manage the symptoms. The client increases awareness to their approach to interpersonal problems, understand them, and learns to manage them more constructively.
A family therapist looks at symptoms in the family context. Some conditions require the treatment of the family unit. Family therapy generally involves discussion and problem-solving sessions with the client and the family, as a group, in couples, or one-to-one.
Psychodynamic therapy, or insight-oriented therapy, focuses on the deep-seated causes of behavior. The aim is to increase self-awareness and understanding of how the past affects present behavior and emotion by gaining an understanding of the source of their emotional distress, usually by exploring motives, needs and defenses that they are not aware of. It can help clients whose symptoms have not been resolved by other forms of psychotherapy.
